I recently stayed at this hotel whilst travelling from South to North on the A1. It's conveniently located right on the A1, it could do with a sign to show where the car park is as in the dark it can be tricky to see where it is. I thought the hotel was really nice, clean and had some good... More

Like millions of others, have driven around this formerly creeper-clad edifice hundreds of times whilst going places, but decided to visit it for first time recently, and very glad we did. Kindly upgraded to an executive King room, which was superbly decorated, with a bathroom almost as big as the spacious bedroom. Had booked D B and B, and we... More

We stayed on a week night and the hotel was really busy! Unfortunately, the music was far too loud in the bar & restaurant, we could hardly hear ourselves speak. The Columbus bar menu's were in a poor state, grubby, falling apart and well in need of replacing. We ordered Club Sandwiches which were great but are not on their... More

I've spent a few nights here recently in exec room and standard rooms. There is a very strict parking policy here. If you are a guest you must register your car at reception upon check in or an unscrupulous company called parking eye will send you a fine and threatening letters (so I hear). I didn't have a problem personally... More

Stayed here for 2 nights to visit the east coast. Check-in was friendly and helpful from Ashleigh. Was impressed with our room on ground floor... Until later on in the ending when at 21.45 on both nights the bar bottle bin was emptied - very loudly and not ideal when you have a little one sleeping. Also the floor boards... More

I would not say it was the best place I have ever stayed. When myself and my friend went to check in the details were wrong. I booked a twin room and got a double room. There is a kettle in the room for tea and coffe making. 2 free bottles of water, a small carton of orange juice and... More

Thank you for reviewing your recent stay with us here at the hotel. When you booked with us it may be that you had only requested a twin room on this occasion. I will investigate this further although this could be the reason as to why you were allocated a double room. Apologies for the inconvenience that this caused. I'm... More

We stayed here on 25th October for the Freddie Mercury tribute night and I have to say it was a fantastic evening. The accommodation was great, the food was lovely and the staff are very helpful and so friendly. The tribute act was not up to much in my opinion however that did not spoil a fantastic night at all!... More
